Delivery pizza from Ugo in W. LA

Last night, looking for some place new to order pizza from in West LA, we decided to try Ugo. We had eaten there once while in a big hurry and it was quite nice, but we didn't have the pizza so this was a step into the unknown.

Last night, we ordered a pizza with artichoke hearts and basil. We were told 30 minutes. Less than 20 minutes later the pizza arrived, still piping hot.

It was a thin, crispy more Italian-style crust. Not quite a cracker-y texture, but certainly leaning in the direction. The crackle of the crust was a delight. The pizza had a thin smear of flavorful sauce and cheese - not a heavy topping pizza by any means. While the basil was nice for color, it added little flavor. But the 'chokes were tasty--although also on the thin side.

The pizza was perfect for a light meal. Not the thing when one is in the mood for a grease-coated, cheese heavy American pizza, but this was a very nice surprise for delivery.

We also had a free order of garlic bread (coupon from their delivery menu). We received two flat rounds with a healthy dose of a slightly sour, nutty cheese, a lot of butter and a light coating of garlic. This would make a great side dish for a saucy pasta dish.

Love finding nice neighborhood surprises.
